There's so much you could do with this soup depending on what you have in your pantry/fridge! For instance, I had tortilla chips and some shredded cheddar, so I added that when serving. If you had an avocado, it would be excellent in this soup! Also, if you like a bit of heat, add a can of diced green chilies! That would be super good in this soup! As always, make it your own by adjusting the recipe to your families' needs!
Here's the easy, yet delicious recipe!
Chickpea Chicken Tortilla Soup
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cans petite diced tomatoes (I used 1 can regular, one can garlic and onion)
1 can Garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained
6 cups water
6 chicken bouillon cubes
1 onion, chopped
(1 4oz. can diced green chilies would be great!)
1 tsp. cilantro
2 tsp. garlic powder or 3-4 fresh garlic cloves
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. paprika
Place all ingredients in the Slow Cooker.
Cook on LOW for 7-8 hours.
Shred the chicken breasts and place shredded meat back into your soup!
Serve with tortilla chips, shredded cheese and fresh avocado slices.
